Hello; could you change the identifier on this page:
https://archive.org/details/itotr-suspense

To this:
https://archive.org/details/itotr-suspense-theradioshow

I know it's a small thing, but I'm fussy/anal (as any good HTMLer should be), and want to keep all my pages of the same type with the same identifier style.

Thanks, Admins!


P.S. In the past, when I clicked 'Help' on the dropdown bar at the top of any Archive page, I believe it showed a page where you could choose between FAQs, Forums, and some other things. Now it jumps straight to the FAQs. Is there another link on Archive pages to get to where you can search the forums?

This is the page I used to get to, and I'm sure it was linked under 'Help' on the dropdown bar:
https://archive.org/iathreads/forums.php

EDIT: Sorry these links didn't work; maybe you can't do both plain-talk and HTML links in the same post. Here is the link to the forum-searching page to which I was referring.

IGNORE THIS PART - IGNORE THIS PART - IGNORE THIS PART

As long as I'm posting, I want to experiment with links with ampersands, and putting links behind words, in forum posts.


~ Simple Link:
https://archive.org/search.php?query=itotr

With Ampersand:
https://archive.org/search.php?query=itotr&sort=-publicdate

Ampersand Escaped:
https://archive.org/search.php?query=itotr&sort=-publicdate

That Weird Freaking Box:
https://archive.org/details/@harry_wilson?and[]=itotr

That WFB Escaped:
https://archive.org/details/@harry_wilson?and[]amp;=itotr

That WFB Escaped with Ampersand Added For No Reason:
https://archive.org/details/@harry_wilson?and[]&=itotr


~ Short HTML Code:

Simple Link Behind Words:
ITOTR

Link With Ampersand Behind Words:
ITOTR

Link With Ampersand Escaped Behind Words:
ITOTR


~ Long rel="nofollow" HTML Code:

Simple Link Behind Words:
Screw Flanders

Link With Ampersand Behind Words:
Screw Flanders

Link With Ampersand Escaped Behind Words:
Screw Flanders


So can I make words big, small, bold, italicized, and underlined?

Cool, but what happened to my plain-talk links?

I've changed the identifier as requested.

I can't speak to why the Help link changed.

The link to the forums page can be found on the Contact page and is located here (as you noted):
https://archive.org/iathreads/forums.php

Thanks, Vanark.

It would be nice if the Forums Forum page was directly linked on the black drop-down bar, maybe with a 'Forums' link beside 'Help'. I've noticed a couple of semi-behind the scenes changes lately, so maybe it's a work in progress.

Another change I've noticed is that our own pages now have a link titled 'Manage' under the 'Edit' link, but I'm still baffled by the Manage page. Would it have been possible to change the page's identifier myself on the Manage page?

--------------------------------

One more time, to help anyone seeking that page:

The Forums Forum:
https://archive.org/iathreads/forums.php

(Of course, it's a bit of a circular reference to assume that someone would be searching the forums to find the page where you search the forums; heh-heh.)

Thanks again!

No, only an admin can change the identifier.

A user can use the manage link to start a new derive process, not much else. Some full re-derives need to be started by an admin.

The forums are listed at the top of each collection (Community Audio, Live Music Archive, etc.) If you go to the collection, you will see About, Collections, Forum (if available.)

Thanks for the Manage info. About the forums, true, but only the Forums Forum page has a searchbox at the top, for searching the forums. (The big searchbox at the upper right of any page doesn't seem to search forum pages.)
